Polyglots Training Working Group Update #4

We are making progress on the Polyglots Training course for Learn WordPress! For context on the idea behind this training, take a look at the original proposal

Updates to the training

As a reminder, all the contents for the Polyglots Training course are stored in the Polyglots Training course Google Drive. Since the Polyglots Training course was approved for Learn WordPress, we have been working on moving all the draft content into a course on learn.wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/.

You can now see three of the six modules via the Polyglots Training course on Learn WordPress.

Currently, most other courses are video-based, so this is one of the first text-based courses on Learn WordPress. With that in mind, there are some changes proposed to the format for lessons and modules on the site to better suit different content types. Those changes have been shared as issues in the Learn WordPress Github repository.

Next steps and how to help

For the Polyglots Training working group, our next steps will be to:

  • Finish moving the draft lesson contents into Learn WordPress.
  • Host workshops for the lessons “How to create a style guide” and “How to create a glossary” to use as videos to include on Learn WordPress.

If you would like to get involved in building the Polyglots Training course, there are a few ways to help!

  • Check the task sheet and sign up for any tasks you can help with.
  • Take the Polyglots Training course and share any feedback you have. Feedback on the content of the course, as well as expectations for the layout and UXUX UX is an acronym for User Experience - the way the user uses the UI. Think ‘what they are doing’ and less about how they do it., are both welcome!
  • If you’re interested in taking part in a live workshop on building a localeLocale Locale = language version, often a combination of a language code and a region code, for instance es_MX denotes Spanish as it’s used in Mexico.
